Provençal-style cooking in legal land

At a glance

Private dining
Wines by the glass
Service charge

Cigalon’s classy dining room certainly evokes memories of sun-drenched South of France dining rather than the dry legal world of Chancery Lane. But it's not all style over substance: the operation scores on all fronts. The kitchen focuses on the grill to deliver its sunny, seasonal Provençal menu of simple, robust, punchy flavoured dishes. Mussels open the show, together with silky butternut squash purée, Corsican figatellu sausage and persillade, while an immaculate main-course slab of roasted cod is matched with charred leeks and dramatic black squid ink aïoli. For dessert, tuck into lemon meringue tart with lavender and lemon sorbet. Baranis is their chic basement bar.<
